The statue of Croatian viceroy Josip Jelacic was dismantling and removal under the Communist government. In 1991the statue was put back in place.
First the statue was situated on a different spot and turned towards Hungary, because the viceroy Josip Jelacic was chief of the command of the Austrian army which has succesfuly suffocated revolt of the Hungarians, at that time the part of K und K monarchy.
Check in enclousure the old photo of Zagreb dating from the end of 19th century, it shows where the moument stood at that time.
The statue is work of Antun Dominik Fernkom, from 1866.
